my surprise was a bunch of battery cable ends that did not melt, most melted right down but a dozen or so just floated, any insight?
in general i realized that one pound lyman ingot bars are tedious to do, i need to consider larger ingots. i destroyed my wifes rug, i remember reading about using a wet towel to cool the bottom of the mold, i didn't realize it'd leave little burn marks to. i probably waited way to long to turn the heat down, was charring the wood plank/makeshift table too. also need to put allot more effort into keeping everything level. got about half of the raw lead smelted, made 160 bars. i also owe my wife a new ladle for her kitchen.
